Termites in Ohio

Subterranean termites are the termites that are most common to Ohio. The eastern subterranean termite, Reticulitermes flavipes, is widely distributed throughout Ohio. Subterranean termites are one of the most potentially damaging insect pest of structures in Ohio. Subterranean termites are species that primarily nest underground. They excavate an extensive network of galleries /tunnels in the soil that allow them to travel far distances to locate food.

Termites in Ohio typically swarm during the months of March, April and May. However, swarms can occur indoors, particularly in  heated structures, during the winter or other times of the year. Termite swarmers often leave the the colony in large numbers(hundreds to thousands) through specially constructed mud tubes. 

Make sure that your termite inspector is licensed through the state of Ohio and that your report is delivered to you on the form NPMA-33, the only form approved by the state of Ohio.
